During the winter 1776, Thomas Paine, a well known writer accompanies General Washingtons troops along the retreat from the dominating British forces. He inspires the troops with his speech, The Crisis, by using rhetroical strategies, and empowering tone, and religous inferences. Paines repetitive referance to God, gains the emotiond of the troops by enhancing their relieability towards their faiths. His speech mentions that power can not be invested to man, but only God has authourity over such entitlements. This develops pathos by having spiritual ingluences and makes Wahingtons troops feel condemned to fight for the cause.
Rhetorical devices are used to appeal to the audience and Henry uses them effectively in that way. Henry first uses ethos to appeal to the morals of the audience by saying ,“Sir, we are not weak, if we make a proper use of the means which the God of nature hath placed in our power.” Henry is appealing to the religious morals of the audience by using God's power to persuade the audience to think that going to war with Great Britain is the right thing to do. The people are more likely to listen to something when they think God gives them the power to do it than when Henry simply asks for the audience to listen. Another rhetorical device Henry uses is pathos to appeal to the audience's emotions. Henry states, “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?
Roosevelt states, “...the tempo of modern warfare could bring into our very midst the physical attack which we must eventually expect if the dictator nations win this war” (15). Roosevelt says this in the way he did because at this point in time he didn’t want to physical fight but he knows if the country needs to we will. Roosevelt knows that wars do not solve the problem which is why he simply wanted to aid countries and not physically fight with them, causing the loss of many lives. Roosevelt had four basic freedoms that he wanted to be conserved and saved. Roosevelt believes that freedom is being able to express yourself in the ways you believe and what you believe in.
Patrick Henry’s techniques used in his speech In Patrick Henry’s speech the most emerged thing that was said “Give me liberty or give me death” In order for Patrick Henry to have the colonists to feel vengeful he basically telling the colonists that they can depend on him and he is telling them that he is a good person and all about doing the right thing to have freedom he is very believing and patriotic. He says that he appreciates and completely respects what others has said at the convention but he believes in things a lot differently and would like to share his opinion everyone.

The American Voice is characterized by bravery, hard working, and being united. The American Voice is characterized as bravery. In Patrick Henry's speech "Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death", he talks about how brave the men are and will fight no matter what the circumstances may be, in paragraph 9 Henry states that, "If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest." In Henry's speech he argues that they will not back down from the battle until they have fulfilled what they wanted to achieve he states this when says, "...which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained-- we must fight!" (8).
There was a contingent that wanted to make him King after the war. He refused the Crown and retired from the military to make sure that the political power will be in the hands of the civilian government (Rees, 2007). This decision showed effective use of intellectual autonomy by thinking for himself and not following popular opinion that he should be a King, and intellectual integrity by staying true to his own thinking in the belief that the power should be in the hands of the people. These examples also displayed his ethical leadership. When Washington surrendered power, he followed the Revolutionary principles avoiding the ethical trap of Drive for Success which, is “putting your own ambition ahead of rules, regulations and codes of conduct (BCEE, 2017d, p. 8).
He established his ethos immediately with the same previous excerpt: “Vice President Johnson, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Chief Justice, President Eisenhower, Vice President Nixon, President Truman, reverend clergy, fellow citizens, we observe today not a victory of party, but a celebration of freedom – symbolizing an end, as well as a beginning – signifying renewal, as well as change” (par. 2). Inspired by Thomas Jefferson’s inaugural address, a historically established and respected president, Kennedy made sure to address that he did not want his victory to be solely a victory for the Democratic Party. Rather than boasting to the Republican Party, Kennedy looked to establish himself as a president who valued unity over partisanship. Towards the end of the speech, Kennedy proved himself a brave and valiant president when, with particular emphasis, he said, “In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger.
Readers analyze the speech as an essay that appeals to the common American and is a speech that makes them feel connected to the president and politics. Finally, President Obama handiness with select words allows him to draw the listener in and capture their attention. It also shows that even though that he won the the presidency he will not show off, but will continually work to make America better place than it ever
William Johnson has a major role at the Philadelphia Convention. Johnson major role at the Convention is his speeches on the subject of representation, the speech has a great contribution to the debate. Johnson favors a strong federal government because he believes it will protect the rights of Connecticut and the other states. Johnson’s favor of a strong federal government led him to support the New Jersey Plan. At the Convention Johnson is against the ex-post facto law.
Kennedy’s speech also talks about the balance of personal integrity and professional responsibility. JFK’s ability to balance his responsibility as president and his personal integrity as catholic has allowed him to be a successful leader. “Whatever issue may come before me as president- on birth control, divorce, censorship, gambling, or any other subject- I will make my decision in accordance with these views, in accordance with what my conscience tells me to be the national interest, and without regard to outside religious pressures or dictates. And no power or threat of punishment could cause me to decide otherwise”(JFK). JFK made decisions based on what is best for the nation and not on his personal opinions on the matter.
President Reagan voices his opinion in hopes that his speech will succeed and the gates will open. Every other speaker is hoping the same thing, that the government will listen to what they are saying and make a change. Though, the people know that their government wants to keep the people safe, it may not be the best choice that is out there. “...for we believe that freedom and security go together, that the advance of human liberty can only strengthen the cause of world peace.” (Eidenmuller, 3) President Reagan is saying that without freedom there can be no world peace. Even though all countries around the world are armed, Berlin still stands tall and secure.
This right has been given to the people by the founding fathers; for that reason, no one has the right to overcome this right or violate it, as he/she will not only infringe the great philosophies and minds of the founding fathers, such as John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and Alexander Hamilton, but also he/she will violate a Constitutional right. Our founding fathers were not the only people that defended religious freedom, but also many great people have done so. One of these people was the fortieth President of the United States, Ronald Reagan, where he mentioned in one of his speeches that “Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.” Democracy, the governmental type that the United States is based upon, is characterized by certain freedoms such as the freedom of press, speech, assembly, and of course the freedom of religion. The extravagantly diverse religions that the United States is relishing is a major contribution to its prosperity and economic stability; additionally, the United States has been a welcoming home to many religions, in which it (the United States) had the advantage of exploiting all of its people’s motivations and resources which caused the United States to become one of the leading nations in today’s society. All these ideas and ideologies define the United States and make it an
